Scottish energy equipment manufacturer and service provider Flowline Specialists has expanded its offering with the launch of a new service and maintenance division.
It will operate from the firm’s existing workshop facility at its Oldmeldrum headquarters and utilise existing personnel.
Alongside the repair, refurbishment and overhaul work, Flowline Specialists will offer an equipment rental service for customers whose equipment is being serviced.
Flowline Specialists, which employs around 50 staff, has been working on developing the new division for about a year, investing around £50,000 to set it up. In recent months, Flowline Specialists has refurbished equipment owned by subsea engineering companies and serviced under rollers for a client operating in the renewable energy sector.
Ross Whittingham, CEO of Flowline Specialists, said: “We have been working to set up this new division for about nine months and it has come about through requests from customers who value our technical expertise and hydraulic and engineering capabilities. Based on this and the high standard of customer service that our team provides through our core equipment service, we have built a strong reputation across the energy sectors.
“We anticipate the demand for servicing and maintaining electrical, hydraulic and mechanical spooling and deployment equipment to be strong. There are oil and gas operators, subsea companies, renewables EPC contractors and end users that retain their own cable handling and deployment equipment that will require regular maintenance or more significant refurbishment. As an independent company, and with our skills, knowledge and capabilities, we can deliver that for them to the highest standards."
